If you're a fan, then you know that Catal was a staple of Downtown DisneyⓇ District. It had been around since the beginning, and it was a favorite for many. However, change is in the air, and Catal and its outdoor bar, Uva Bar, have closed. Two new Mexican restaurants will be taking their place, and they're going to be amazing. Paseo will be a high-end restaurant, perfect for a fancy night out. Meanwhile, Centrico will be a more casual spot, perfect for vacationers who want to relax and enjoy some delicious food. And the best part? Both restaurants will be run by Michelin-starred chef Carlos Gaytán, so you know the food is going to be incredible.
But that's not all! Porto's, one of Southern California's most famous bakeries, is coming! Whether you're looking for a breakfast pastry or a sweet treat late at night, Porto's will have you covered.
Other restaurant concepts coming include Clyde's Hot Chicken, Din Tai Fung, and a reimagined Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio (currently open and known as Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen.)
And if that wasn't enough, there's going to be a new open lawn for exploration, special events, and musical entertainment! It's going to be a dynamic space that's perfect for all kinds of activities. So, get ready, because Downtown DisneyⓇ District is about to get even better! Walt Disney once said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world”. The Downtown DisneyⓇ District is continuing its growth!
